A Good Place

Author: Lucy Cousins
Illustrator: Lucy Cousins
Publisher: Walker

This picturebook by award-winning author-illustrator Lucy Cousins stars a group of minibeasts looking for a new place to call home that fulfils all their needs. But as the patterned text unfolds, each place they encounter is beset by pollution or pesticides, and is met with the repeated refrain “Oh no! This is NOT a good place!”. Finally, the friends find the perfect insect-friendly garden. Perfect for encouraging little environmentalists to consider how to make their local outdoor spaces, whether a garden or a patch of pavement, more welcoming for wildlife.
